Sharing my awesome news!!!

Hi guys, Ohhhhhhhh I'm so excited to be able to tell you today that I am now part of the
I will be showing you what I have made with the Crafteezee collections, which as you know are monthly collections from Tracy, they contain secret products till you open the package which is a fab, a bit like Christmas!! but once a month, lol
Anyway enough of my babble, of course it's the first of the month so it's time for our challenge which this time is,

Add lace

I made this for my mums 87th Birthday which was yesterday!!

I used some of the products from the "Elegant Ladies" collection which has sold out, but the next one May - Life is a Journey is due soon and is available to order here,
The gorgeous papers are from the Sofiera collection by Maja Design 6" x 6" pad and I distressed the edges and machine stitched them, Tracy sells these in her shop but they are out of stock at the moment, however if you drop her an e-mail she will see what she can do,

I also added the beautiful Rhinestone Butterfly embellishment which was in  the collection too, here and there I added a hint of a die cut made with the  Fantasy Magic Lace die,

I made a feature out of one of the papers by cutting out one of the images, ( my mum loves pink and roses) cut two more pieces of the same size out of  some of the papers, then layered them up slightly off center and tied them together with some waxed cord in white, I will link to the other products used you can buy from Tracy's shop below,
At the base of the card I added some of the gorgeous Louisa Lace which again was in the collection, plus the adorable flowers, I simply added some Dutch Doobadoo structure paste to these, the trailing leaves die by Rosy owl and a pen nib all from Tracy's shop,

I also added a feather from my stash to finish off my card,

 Here's the full view again, which also show's the adorable pearl hearts which were part of the collection too,

Inside I used some more of the paper, distressed and machine stitched them, then wrote a verse for her:

Today you're eighty seven
A very big event,
But what a lot of puff ....
....You'll need
To blow those candles out!!

Fussy and Fancy Fridays - anything goes

She likes it when I make up verses for her and they are much more personal aren't they!! lol 
Happy Crafting!!
